The new DJI Mavic Mini 2 tip suggests an inexpensive 4K drone with improved connectivity and a better body.
Later this year, DJI plans to bring out its second version to its smallest and most affordable drone. With powerful traces pointing towards this DJI Mavic Mini 2 drone’s impending coming. Given that drone came less than a year ago, it would be something of a surprise to see that a Mavic Mini 2 so soon, but that’s what a new FCC (Federal Communications Commission) filing in the US strongly suggests.
If you are unfamiliar with the initial DJI Mavic Mini, it came around Nov 2019 and became among its most popular drones for anyone starting their drone hobby, as a result of its small structure and also the simple fact its 249 grams weight dipped 1 gram below the weight needed for enrollment with the FAA.
The Mavic Mini 2 camera
The upgraded DJI Mavic Mini 2 will have a 12MP camera; therefore, it would appear there won’t be some substantial upgrade from the initial Mavic Mini’s camera. But moving out of 2.7K video into 4K video can be actually just really a massive jump — also can probably end up being somewhat popular with videographers on the market for a fresh small drone. It might also signify there are a few attractive Mavic Black-Friday deals, too. The Mavic Mini 2 sensor will improve its video shooting. Among the biggest constraints of this recent Mavic Mini is that it lacks the capacity to shoot 4K or 2.7K/60p movie; therefore, an increase in that section appears to be highly probable.
The DJI Mavic Mini 2 controller improved connectivity.
The initial Mavic Mini was worked utilizing a 5.8GHz frequency into the control. Why the gap? Well, 5.8GHz can be really actually just a faster signal; however, it supposes space. Even a 2.4GHz signal isn’t too fast, but it’s a larger scope; therefore, both frequencies supply you with a wider spectrum for transmission that is optimized.
How about the new Mavic Mini 2 battery?
The battery voltage on the new Mavic Mini 2 is 7.7V from the battery, simply slightly higher than 7.2V of the original Mavic Mini. So we expect a flight time to increase to 32 minutes.
The DJI Mavic Mini Specs
Up to now, info on the specs and release date is tough to find. But, we have listed below the potential upgrades of the new DJI Mavic Mini 2.
- The same weight of 249 grams.
- Same dimension but stronger body
- Stronger motors
- A marginally bigger sensor (1/1.7″) will be potential
- New chip to handle the enhanced video quality
- 4K video recording at 30fps, or 60fps.
- Stronger battery
- Longer flight time (31-32 Minutes)
- The cost will probably be higher ($419)
If the DJI Mavic Mini 2 keeps its 249 grams weight and adds 4K pictures and videos, it could be a complete game-changer!
We’d also want to see it obtain the thing tracking abilities seen in more powerful DJI drones, just like the DJI Mavic Air 2. This would be a perfect fit for this a beginner-friendly drone, though it’s really a step a lot for a $419US and AU$599 version (assuming it’s a similar price tag to this Mavic Mini) isn’t yet obvious. Inspired by the FCC filing that normally points to an imminent launch, we will not have to wait to learn.
